Cantor Fitzgerald has hired a former Lehman Brothers hedge fund salesperson to head its new structured credit sales team for the U.K. and Ireland.
Vanessa Bradford was head of hedge fund sales and European structured products at Lehman. She was named top salesperson and top producer at the now-defunct bank in both 2006 and 2007.
Bradford is one of 12 new hires announced by Cantor in Europe, in fixed-income and asset-backed securities, as well as structured credit.
“We have an unwavering commitment to serve our clients’ needs in the debt capital market throughout the U.K. and the continent,” John Baldo, global head of sales, said. “Bringing this team of seasoned industry professionals on board in key markets underscores our focus on the importance of the combination of strong and lasting client relationships, deep industry knowledge, and excellence in execution.”
